PSRD Parser

This program parses the text from the Paizo Pathfinder Reference Document website and turns the data into a series of JSON files. It then can transform those JSON files into an SQLite3 database intended for use with the Pathfinder Open Reference project.


Any third-party libraries that need to be installed are listed in conf/requirements.txt.

You need to ensure you have a src/dir.conf file, that sets up certain environment variables and is sourced by the shell scripts. A template file is provided: src/dir.conf.template.

Check docs for known issues and notes on the database, among other things.
